Beauty queens: Ariana Grande and Jourdan Dunn were the leaders of a fashionable pack of stars on the red carpet at the MTV EMAs at Glasgow’s SSE Arena on Sunday night, with both of them flashing a sizable amount of cleavage
The stars were out in force for the MTV European Music Awards on Sunday night, held at Glasgow’s SSE Arena.
Ariana Grande and Jourdan Dunn went all-out with their ensembles as they led the way on the fashionable red carpet at the start of the evening, both of them wearing alluring cleavage revealing dresses.
Ariana, who was one of the first big-name stars to arrive, sported a stylish frock with a cut-out detail over her chest and on her sides, revealing a flash of a sideboob, as well as her lean, toned arms.
The American pop star, who was nominated for a handful of EMAs – including Best Song for her mega-hit Problem – showed no sign of being tired, as the night before the awards she tweeted that she was suffering from a touch of insomnia.
‘Caaaan’t sleep,’ the 21-year-old posted on Twitter, hinting at possible pre-show nerves.
The stunning hitmaker wore her long, glossy locks down, cascading over her shoulders, mixing it up from her usual high ponytail hairstyle that she has become famous for.
‘I feel so naked!’: On the red carpet, Ariana revealed that wearing her hair down made her feel rather exposed
She wore a slick of muted pink on her lips and a subtle bronze shadow on her eyelids, and minimal jewellery, letting the cleavage-baring dress speak for itself.
Model Jourdan Dunn – who had been seen arriving in the city earlier in the day – positively wowed on the red carpet in a revealing little white dress.
The 24-year-old model’s white frock had a very deep plunging V-neck that skimmed over her navel, revealing her ample cleavage that rested above a silver bar across the gap.
The mother-of-one glowed as she smouldered for the cameras, her bob hairstyle coiffed into a neat and glossy style with loose waves.

Showing off: Jourdan drew attention to her decorated hands as she worked the red carpet into a frenzy
The British beauty teamed her all-white look with lashings of mascara on her almond-shaped eyes, with her elegant arms and hands bedecked in silver items of jewellery.
She also made sure her white look went from head to toe, as she wore white pointed court shoes to finish it off.
Perhaps the most striking part of her look, though, were her seemingly endless legs that looked even longer with the super-short cut of the mini dress.
Singer and TV star Alesha Dixon looked quirky and cute in her unique printed dress, that had a navy pinstripe background and a multicoloured design emblazoned across the front, with a penguin taking centre stage on the garment.
The frock was cut in a trapeze-style, keeping her slender curves well-hidden, but she managed to flashed her enviable legs.
She finished off her eclectic look with slicked-back hair, a glossy berry shade on her lips and intricately decorated black sandals.

Revealing: MTV presenter Laura Whitmore went for a daring look, that included an undone blouse tucked into a sequinned mini-skirt, revealing her cleavage and toned torso
MTV presenter Laura Whitmore worked the red carpet along with fellow presenter Sway Calloway ahead of the show, sporting a stunning black outfit that revealed quite a lot of skin.
The brave star teamed an unbuttoned black blouse with a sequinned black mini skirt, that showed off her decolletage and a racy bit of sideboob.
Wearing her blonde locks down in a slightly mussed-up style, she also added a couple of gold necklaces to her ensemble, that drew attention to her bare cleavage.
Her legs looked endless in the super-short skirt, and she finished the look with towering black heels with a dainty ankle strap.

Singer Kiesza stole the show in her multicoloured, strap-laden frock that included a feathery mini-skirt, showing her legs off.
The 25-year-old Canadian, who is nominated for Best New Act styled her hair in an intricate plaited updo, that she revealed when turning around on the red carpet.
The Hideaway hitmaker completed her get-up with strappy tan, black and white high heeled sandals, and a flash of scarlet lipstick.
Meanwhile, soon-to-be ex-Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison went all-out with a showstopping floor-length gown, that wouldn’t have looked out of place on the red carpet at a major movie awards ceremony.
Although the reality TV star cut a striking figure the glittery gown covered in sheer panels, she admitted to MailOnline on the red carpet that she was struggling with the skirt, as she kept getting her heels caught in the hem.
‘I’m having a bit of a wardrobe malfunction at the moment!’ she said, adding that the backless item was from retailer Miss Francesca.

She teamed her high-fashion yet casual look with smart black pointed heels, and a metallic bronze sleeveless jacket.
Scottish singer Emeli Sande revealed a new hairstyle, reminiscent of superstar Beyonce’s, featuring a short blonde fringe with her tresses piled up high on her head in a chic bun.
She teamed a simple mid-length white strappy dress with a sheer burgundy kimono, and added a touch of bling with a large, ornate gold necklace.
The popular singer revealed that she’s in the midst of preparing a new album, a follow-up to her successful 2012 record Our Version Of Events.
‘The new album is going really well, expect it to be released next year,’ she said.

She’s up for both the Best Female and Best Hip-Hop Act gongs at the prestigious ceremony, but has to fend off the likes of Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift for the first.
She’s also up against Drake, Eminem, Iggy Azalea and Kanye West for the Hip-Hop prize.
She said before her big EMAs hosting debut: ‘I’m most excited about experiencing the crowd, because I was told they are a very live crowd and I like crowd participation and I like speaking directly to the people.
‘So, I’m excited to see how that is going to work.’
